  1. If you have NOT applied clear coat, you can use making tape to remove the decals w/o removing the paint. You may have to rub the masking tap in the area of the decal, but most of the time this will work
  2. I followed the WIP on this one. SO glad you changed the blue color on this as this looks just RIGHT! Very nice work!
  3. I followed the WIP! Excellent work and a fantastic result! Love how this turned out. An iconic car and you certainly did it justice.
  4. Admittedly, operating from memory, but the blue that was last applied looks much closer to how I remember the car from 1975. I'll be following with interest!
  5. Very nice job on that Eagle. I love how that turned out! That kit is little bit of a PITA and fiddly, but you'd a great job!
  6. I probably saw this car race! I went to several USAC stock car shows, both dirt and pavement in the late 60's and early 70's. You did a great job with capturing the "feel" of that era in USAC stock car racing.
  7. That's COOL! I know there were some Cougar Late Models, but around the Midwest they were few and far between. Excellent build!
  8. FANTASTIC!! Nice work on the detailing of the fuel and the wiring! Exceptional build!
  9. Beautiful work! A stunning tribute to the Legendary Roland Leong!
  10. You are doing a very nice job with what is IMO, kind of a pig of a kit. The kit is (again, MY opinion) a very rough representation of the McLaren Indy Car. It is really unfortunate that there have not been many accurate, commercially available Indy car models made. I am hoping the new kits supposedly in test shot phase will be more representative
  11. Great job! I am old enough and was fortunate enough to see the Big John Willys and the SWC Willys match race at my local drag strip in about 1965. You got it right!!
  12. VERY nicely done!! I love that era of indy cars as they were just discovering aero and before ground effects
  13. Very nice!! I think I've built at least one of every Polar Lights funny car released. The frames were all a PITA, and the decals were extremely fragile, but with patience and perseverance they build in t a very respectable model. You did an excellent job on this one!
  14. Great job on a rare, classic kit. You absolutely NAILED the paint color!
  15. Very nice work thus far!! Outstanding detail.
  16. That is a GREAT looking build!! Nice Work!
  17. Very clean, good looking build. I LOVE this dragster. Well done!!
  18. Beautiful, amazing work once agin Ian! I love your builds. They just look "right" when you are through. Great job!
  19. THAT is just Fantastic!! Great build! Certainly a car that doesn't get modeled very often, although I'm old enough I do remember seeing pictures of it at different events.
  20. You did a very nice job. I built this a few years back...it can be very "finicky".
  21. I FINALLY got this one done!! I started with a 1/16 scale Revell Jungle Jim and ended up with this. I had this almost done 9 months ago, dropped the body and broke it. I got pissed and put it away, and finally got it back out last month. I'm never going to be at the level of some of the people that post on here, but I'm pretty happy with the results. I made some changes to the frame and some of the mounting points to get the stance the way I THINK a 70's funny car should look. I used Pro-Tech lines, fittings, spark plug wires and boots to detail the engine. I used 65lb. braid fishing line as parachute cord. Decals are from Chuck Boerner of Chuck's Vintage Drag Racing Decals. Thank you all for looking!!
  22. Beautifully done!! I have ALWAYS loved the paint jobs on the Keeling and Clayton cars!!
  23. The Petty Road Runner with the black vinyl top was used in the 1968 Daytona 500. There is quite a bit of disagreement on whether it really was a "vinyl" covering. One story is that the top was embossed metal and painted black to disguise that it had been acid dipped to significantly reduce it's thickness and the embossing was done to improve airflow to compete with the Dodge Chargers, Ford Torinos and Mercury Cyclones. Not sure how much truth there is in the story, but it was discussed on a NASCAR forum some time back. HorrorSHow, GREAT job on the model. Fantastic!
